District 5300 (comprised of 64 Rotary Clubs) has committed one (and possibly one additionally, if remaining District funds are not subscribed) Global Grant scholarship for 2021-22.

The scholarship is for a Masters’ (or Doctorate) at any foreign university of one’s choice (where there is a Rotary Club). Kin of Rotarians may not apply. A Rotary Club may submit only one scholar applicant per year.

A scholarship is $30,000, and its components are: $12,000 from Rotary International; $16,800 from District 5300; and $1,200 from the sponsoring Rotary Club.

In lieu of the RI Global Grant Scholar template, one may submit a one-page letter of introduction, accompanied by transcripts, resume and acceptance from the foreign university. There will be two interviews, one at the Club level and a second, by the District Global Grant committee.

If there is more than one candidate, all will interviewed back-to-back at a date in February (yet to be set). This scholarship is subject to final approval of Rotary International.
